Summary: I purchased this on an Amazon sale for about 1/2 price and must say it was the best value for the money at the time. I've own it now for about a year and have been very happy for a 2nd generate device. Pros-easy to create routes by several methods.
Summary: I bought this two and half years ago. I was spending a lot of time in the States and needed a GPS. I bought it because I thought once I got home I could get UK maps for it and fit them on the Hard drive.
Summary: It is very unfortunate that you cannot get map updates for this GPS. Overall I found it to be well built, easy to use and efficient. However, I have had the unit for over 2 years. The maps are in serious need of up-dating and there appears no way to do that.
Summary: I have a 550 and have had nothing but problems. Sent back to Navman after 6 mos. of very light use because the touch screen stopped working. They took 6 weeks to fix it. Now trying to buy updated maps for US and told Navman does not support map updates for this product anymore. What a joke.
Summary: The Navman 550 is an excellent transportable GPS product that is easy to program and easy to operate. Its precise voice instructions in addition to its easily read and understood graphics make it a joy to use.
Summary: I find that the Navman 550 is a discontinued GPS Talked to Navan. I sent letter asking to return product, as it wan not stated, that it was a discontinued model. The maps do not have updated maps, there fore it does not show the 911 road names for finding rural addreses therefore it is not the help...
